Conifers at the Garden Centre

We stock a range of conifers, normally in 1, 2 or 3 litre pots .  The smaller ones make an excellent central feature in a pot or mixed with heathers in a bank. The larger growing ones can feature in a mixed border or as a 'stand alone' plant. The toughest ones up here on Skye tend to be the Junipers, either the low growing ones that make good ground cover or the upright ones that stand up well to the wind and gales here!

Scotts Pine (Pinus sylvestris), stocked on our Native Trees shelf, is a native here.;

Conifers available are as shown below. We update this regularly.
